Woonsocket

The Woonsocket Community Club will once again be sponsoring the Christmas Caring Tree for Sanborn County area children. It will once again be located in the lobby of the First National Bank at Woonsocket.   

Families who would like their children to participate may pick up an application at the bank or call 796-4422.  Confidentiality will be enforced, and all participants will remain anonymous.

Individuals wishing to support the Caring Tree may pick up a name off the Caring Tree after Friday, Nov. 30, or make a monetary donation at the bank.

The new application date, for children’s names to be accepted, is Nov. 30. 

A large crowd of people were at the lake in the middle of town to cheer Jeff Schulz on in his endeavors to run/walk from Le Sueur, Minn., to Woonsocket.

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, Jeff Schulz finished the last leg of his run/walk coming into his much-loved hometown of Woonsocket. As he traveled down Highway 34 from Artesian to Woonsocket, he had an immense support system with him. Many of his family members were there for every step, and members of the community joined him intermittently along the last 15 miles of his trail. As they came into town, the troupe was met and led by a fire truck from Woonsocket’s Town and Country Fire Department.
